It’s a highly-centralized or­ga­ni­za­tion, based in a part of the world that I don’t much like. I’m not say­ing that’s a bad idea; it seems to be work­ing for them. I’m not even say­ing that it’s a bad idea to do your next start­up in the Bay Area, if you can han­dle the lifestyle. ¶

But I do think the In­ter­net econ­o­my would be bet­ter and more hu­mane if it didn’t have a sin­gle white-hot highly-overprivileged cen­ter. Al­so, soon­er or lat­er that’ll stop scal­ing. Can’t hap­pen too soon.
